OpenStack DBaaS: Press Release

Tesora DBaaS Platform Adds MySQL Enterprise

Implementation of OpenStack Trove now capable of managing 12 database types

Database and IT managers can use the newest version of the Tesora database as a service (DBaaS) platform to manage 12 different database technologies throughout their lifecycle.

The new Tesora DBaaS Platform Enterprise Edition 1.6 builds on the extensive list of databases currently supported, adding MySQL Enterprise Edition 5.6. Additional capabilities brought to Tesora's enterprise-hardened implementation of OpenStack Trove include the following:

  • Oracle 12c now implemented as a standard database guest with backup and restore capabilities
  • PostgreSQL backup and restore, configuration group definitions and clustering, as well as new replication functionality
  • Full integration with OpenStack Ceilometer for monitoring and billing, including some 100 notifications to track database backups, replication, resizing, authorized users and more;
  • MySQL and PostgreSQL now have the ability to retrieve log files for help with troubleshooting
  • Support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 7 added to existing distributions
  • Certified by Mirantis for Mirantis OpenStack 6.1 distribution

"We continue to add support for more databases and operating systems but equally important we are adding new capabilities to the platform, such as log file management and more support for monitoring," said Ken Rugg, CEO of Tesora. "These improvements make our implementation of OpenStack Trove the most advanced platform for database as a service."

In addition to multiple databases supported, Tesora DBaaS Enterprise Edition is certified with leading OpenStack distributions that in addition to Mirantis OpenStack include Red Hat Enterprise OpenStack and Ubuntu OpenStack.

Tesora, the primary developer and supporter of OpenStack Trove, provides 24/7 support with enterprise service level agreements, along with frequent maintenance release and bug fixes that resolve problems quickly, plus detailed documentation. Tesora is the leading contributor to the Trove project, alongside other contributing companies like HP, Rackspace, eBay, and Red Hat.

Tesora DBaaS Platform Enterprise Edition 1.6 is available immediately. This enterprise-hardened implementation of the OpenStack Trove DBaaS is based on the most current OpenStack code base (stable Liberty).

About OpenStack Trove
OpenStack Trove database as a service is transforming the way databases are provisioned and managed, to make database capacity that can be consumed on-demand. Trove lets administrators and DevOps manage multiple instances of different database management systems (DBMS), both relational and NoSQL, using a common infrastructure. This makes it much easier and faster to select and operate a database - while retaining all its capabilities - in a secure private or public cloud. The result is that routine tasks like provisioning, and managing regular administrative tasks like clustering, replication, backup and restore are handled in a simple, unified way.

About Tesora

Tesora brings more than 200 years of cumulative database technology experience to the OpenStack community, helping organizations get the most from their OpenStack investment by making it easy to deliver database capacity on demand. The company is the leading contributor to the OpenStack Trove project and developer of Tesora DBaaS Platform Enterprise Edition, the first commercially-available product based on Trove.
